adding a bumper to, and compressing, 200+ videos -- suggestions?

I need to add a 3sec branding bumper to the start of hundreds of short .mov's, and then recompress them to .mov, .flv, and perhaps .mp4.

flash video mx lets me do this in a batch, and works wonderfully, but only exports to .flv. does anyone have any mac or pc software recc's that would cover a bunch of formats (including batch-adding the bumper video.)

thanks!

andy

usually bumpers are not added, but chained a way or another (by stream server). So you can have random bumper, or update without recompiling everything.

true -- although this is for syndication to external sites (youtube, yahoo, etc), where we aren't able to tie them programatically. any software reccs?

canopus procoder ?
virtualdub (scriptable with avisynth)?
Total converter ?
www.boilsoft.com ?
www.xilisoft.com ?

my advice is to make it in 2 pass.
first join the bumper, make an uncompressed avi (or slightly compressed (huffyuv ?).
then compress these avi to all the format needed.
i would use the boilsoft then canopus procoder (you can select one source to convert and several target (mov.wmv etc...) as output).

actually, checking those out, while they all boasted a stitch function, none of them seem to offer the option to prepend multiple files (eg. an entire folder, or a selected 50) with the same single file.

any other ideas? thanks!

avisynth does it, but you have to write the script (a simple copy/paste).
